BTW, only 22% of NZ is habitable, unlike Holland, where a 320m hill is the highest point :D Many of the 'headlines' in our 'news' services lately have been about overload in places that were once beautiful, isolated, pieces of paradise, but have become over-visited and polluted with urine, faeces a...

Trip to New Zealand

Hi people,

I'm planning a trip to New Zealand.
Starting 1 week in Auckland and after that 5 weeks through North Island.
Since there are a lot of kiwi's here, I suppose someone can tell me if there is any craft distillery on the North Island, the internet is not really helpful.

Interesting Odin, but why choose the heavy roasted chocolate malt, and not a lower EBC? And what about using a black malt, or roasted barley? Just thinking, not judging.

Great that you are exploring making it legal, but we carry on regardless. Legality depends on enforcibility. The enforcers have big problems.

Re: weird idea

I make my jenever different form Odin, take a small amout (2 ltr) of alcohol, and use a small still with a botanical basket, this way you create a strong essence, which you can mix with the greater bulk (for jenever 10 ml/ltr). The same can been done with rum I think.

Why do you not finish a spirit run, and do a third run with the botanicals? That's the way jenever is made.

It's been done by many. This is a great recipe. But it also is a great base recipe to build off of. I use wheat in mine. But you will find people using anything grain in it. And many different grain bills. I'm sure any grain you add will work out fine. And make a good drop. As long as you like that...
